3:00 am
career criminal spending the last of his wasted life in prison. i'm gretta van susteren, good night. night. >> good morning, everyone, sunday, april 15th, i'm alisyn camerota. extreme weather alert. twister terror in the midwest, more than 100 tornados across one state. >> two tornados, two tornados. >> oh, yeah! >> oh, my gosh! >> well, storm chasers may like it, but they are deadly and we're live in iowa where 75 percent of that town is destroyed. >> dave: and dick cheney is speaking out just three weeks after getting that new heart and using it to go after the president. >> i think he has been an
3:01 am
unmitigated disaster to the country. >> dave: tell us how you really feel. more from the former vp ahead. >> clayton: all aboard, why the former head of the tsa now says that lighters and knives should be be allowed in the sky and he's being called on the what he calls the broken mess at our airports. "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ >> good morning, everybody, we have a very busy morning for you, we begin with a fox news alert, because not heeding yesterday's warning to prepare for mother nature's wrath. and hundreds of horrifying twisters just like this one in kansas, they violently poured through the midwest and they're now blamed for the tragic deaths of at least five in oklahoma. >> one of the hardest hit
3:02 am
towns, in they aurmon, iowa whe 75% of the town has been destroyed. over to you, rick, happening in the overnight hours. >> rick: good morning, yeah, this one coming through thurmon, iowa during the dark time around 7, 7:30, a lot of rain earlier in the day probably made things better, at least in nebraska, it cools the atmosphere down and it wasn't as explosive and kansas and oklahoma where we see some of the biggest pictures of the large her tornados. and here, on the outskirts of town, just pulled in around ten minutes ago and a lot of tree damage, a lot of minor home damage, at least at first look right here, but we have been able to get farther in, there's still power lines down and not letting us get farther into town. this small town, 230 population and 90 buildings in
3:03 am
the town. take you look, i want you take you through area. and in neb rasknebraska, a ragil storm, flash flooding and cashes washed out so much precipitation and lame it hooked like snow. but this was in the northeast corner and that storm was not tornadic it was just a hill storm. some of the still pictures out of kansas, getting an idea what it looked like. a storm chaser friend of mine was there, jeremy holmes and take a look at that tornado, what a scary sight in kansas, three different pictures that he got that he sent to me and all around the central kansas area, the town of selena was under the gun. and it's a big town around 40,000 people and around three miles before selena, that
3:04 am
tornado lifted and then landed again, right on the other side of the town. so they were certainly spared. but think about the storms kansas, guys, and oklahoma sparsely populated, small towns every eight to ten miles and these tornados for the most part dodged the towns and that's not always the case. five years ago kansas, one of the small towns was wiped off the map and an overnight tornado, last night during the overnight hours, woodward, oklahoma one of the towns that was hit, people were hearing reports that lightning had taken out the alarm system before the tornado got there. so they didn't have any audible warning of the tornado coming and that's where we're now hearing reports of five fatalities and a churning of that town that's been destroyed. at this point, it many ways, nebraska dodged the bullet because it got so much rain earlier on and it cooled the environment and kansas and oklahoma a lot of folks in the
3:05 am
overnight hours we'll get more idea exactly what happened in the next couple of hours. >> rick, i imagine, and hard to tell at this point, but hearing the storm warnings 24 hours ahead of time. would you say that that probably accounts for why we didn't have as many deaths, obviously, because of this, because people knew about it? >> and there's two things, i think one-- because it's a job cuts in tuscaloosa, it's a great point, but we had the warning so people were very aware of what was happening and i think there's one other thing and there were so many tornado chasers out there and because of twitter and social media now, people can see a tornado, get that message out there so quickly there's a tornado on the ground and exactly where it's going and that, i think, at this point. people think social media, people in social media think it's a fun thing, but i believe they save lives. >> we saw that with earthquake
3:06 am
issues, south of the border and it's crazy with the different watches and warnings. >> the tornados look so gigantic there, i mean, the funnel cloud is bigger than we remembered seeing the one that was sent in by jeremy holmes, when you were issuing the warnings as were so many forecasters, using the term life threatening, is that because you knew there'd be so many tornados or they were bigger or more powerful? >> yeah, we knew yesterday they would be big tornado, not small, ef-0, ef-1, but knew they would be big tornados, the one in kansas, if anybody was watching yesterday and seen the radar, you'd see the individual spots on the radar and when you see those, the cells, those are the ones that create these kinds of tornados. what ended up happening here in iowa was part of the squall line and you get a smaller tornado, this is definitely smaller up here, but those
3:07 am
that you're seeing like this video that came down in the kansas area, those are large and when we say potentially life threatening or catastrophic tornados, that's what they were. and fortunately, for the most part, it appears they did not hit towns and more populated areas except for that one likely in the woodward, oklahoma area. >> thank you, rick, we should caution, obviously, these are overnight storms, we're probably not aware of the damage or the deaths just yet and you can see where rick is there, hardly a clue what happened overnight and we will learn throughout the next four hours. so stick around. >> the let's tuck about politics, president obama is doing just that. sat down for an interview and talked about how if he just gets another term, he'll be able to truly tackle one of his pop priorities and that is immigration reform and if it's
3:08 am
deja vu, it's that candidate obama said the same there. >> dave: he actually said that immigration reform would be the top priority first year as president and he said i
3:09 am
guarantee in my first year as president, i'll put forth legislation that will reform immigration. he used the word guarantee and now as president he realizes it's hard to make guarantees like that because so many other people have to-- >> tried to get nixon to do this. >> absolutely. a little bit more sir vum inspect. if congress will go along. >> dave: correct me if i'm wrong. he said i have no vote for it. what bill, what plan has he pushed forward to say this is my plan, this is what i want to do, will you vote for it.
3:10 am
and if that's knock on the president, whether it's health care or whether it's the economy, that he lets other people craft things without saying here is my plan and show some leadership and then we'll see where you vote on it. >> democrats would argue that the only thing they would see would be the dream act, but that was minor, inconsequential when you talk about the 11 million immigrants in the country and another exchange that the president had with russian president medvedev. and we talked about the last election and what he hoped to accomplish, take a listen. >> after my election i have more flexibility. >> and not relevant to immigration, but he has focus
3:11 am
on the he next term. >> dave: meanwhile, dick cheney the former vice-president, weeks after getting the new heart took to the stage and dick cheney has a new heart and has plenty of life and plenty of vigor, he looks good. >> clayton: a lot of fire. >> dave: he had a lot of fire last night and he talked a lot of things and of course, focusing on president obama. >> can't think of a time when i felt it was more important for us, with respect to barack obama. i think he has been an unmitigated disaster to the country. and i think in this a position where he gets four more years in the white house, and continuing the policy he has moved with the economy and policy and some other areas would be a huge, huge disappointment. >> clayton: i also talked about the need for the party to rally behind mitt romney.
3:12 am
and obviously we have he a been going through the rancorous debates. barbara bush says it's been one of the most rancorous. >> and now a rally behind mitt romney. >> i think it's very important that we get together and gather together and get behind our likely nominee, mitt romney. i've known him for a long time, i've got a lot of confidence in him. >> he said he'll do a whale of a job. >> dave: a whale of a job. >> alisyn: he'll do a whale of a job, but as much as it's as political story, it's a medical story. everybody said that he spoke for an hour, that he didn't get-- >> it's remarkable. >> alisyn: he looks much more healthy than the past year. >> dave: yeah, it took. >> alisyn: more robust. >> dave: and not talking with a cain. >> clayton: or the battery
3:13 am
pack and flew back to jackson hole, wyoming, he didn't stick around and shake hands, but flew in and flew out, but a month after heart surgery. >> alisyn: let's talk about stimulus dollars, two plans in michigan, 300 million dollars, these were electric battery plants and two plants in fact the president and vice-president featured. they went to the plants for the ground breaking and these were actually shovel ready project that were getting 300 million in stimulus. yes, these plants did produce electric batteries, but they used foreign korean workers, the accusation, to do so. >> dave: and they were largely owned by koreans as well, and lg kem and dow fo-kem got a lot of our stimulus dollars and created jobs for koreans.
3:14 am
and they say they were temporary, legal and the koreans who took the job have unique experience with sophisticated equipment. they're saying there was no americans who could provide this work. >> dave: that's a dispouted notion. >> alisyn: it's possible. because we know that training has been down. you know, we do have a problem with skilled workers here, so this is the same ball of wax. that we have the money within those jobs, but not the workers and not the skills. >> clayton: not the engineers perhaps to do that and some people would say that's baloney and like mike, not against the president, from another country, but this is american taxpayer dollars and there should be american jobs created with those american taxpayer dollars. >> alisyn: you would think there would be laws or
3:15 am
stipulations that the money go to american workers. >> right. >> alisyn: of course it's more complicated. >> dave: that's one of the flaws, you rush the thing out there, are they shovel ready jobs, how will woo he diree dir. and one of the disagreements between the supporters. >> clayton: my pal dave briggs, flying out. >> alisyn: actually tomorrow morning and the first time i've flown at five and-- >> i'll enjoy that. >> dave: six hour flight. >> clayton: you have to deal with bringing more than through ounces of liquids and shoes. and the former head of the tsa says the whole thing is a broken mess and criticizing the way that the tsa goes through the routine and remarkable to hear him saying all of these things don't work.
3:16 am
>> alisyn: very comforting. and here he is, he says that more than a decade after 9/11 the national embarrassment that the system remains so bureaucrat particular and disconnected from the people from the people who it was meant to product a and made air travel an unending nightmare for passengers and tsa check point, basically going on an easter egg hunt rather than focusing on what makes you safe. >> alisyn: that sounds more fun than standing in line. >> clayton: an easter egg hunt. >> alisyn: and i'm not sure about the analogy, one of the most shocking things, he thinks there's a way to reform the tsa, that is to allow currently banned items back on board, including knives and lighters. >> not and just that, give the tsa officers more
3:17 am
flexibility, rewards for initiatives and hold them accountable and eliminate the baggage fees and randomize the security. i was struck by allowing the liquids back on and how it unfold this had year, having the bomb because of the liquid and the underwear bomber, but knives, knives and lighters. >> alisyn: and allowing knives on, i would like a justification, he knows it's just to make it faster and the tsa agents are spending so much time combing through luggage looking for lighters not focused on an actual terror plot. >> clayton: but the idea, i know his point is that the secure now not worrying about a knife going through the bullet-proof door. what about the passengers, what if one of the guys threatened the passenger, land the plane, do xy and z. >> dave: we've talked about
3:18 am
things like el-al airlines and it's clear the system we have is broken and point out there are major flaws. he's got a book coming out. april 24th inside the tsa and the fight for the future of american security and that should be interesting to figure out. and overall, what we can do to fix this. >> alisyn: it's fascinating. en you don't have to put granny in the wheelchair and the-- >> or my toddler. >> alisyn: the toddler, exactly. >> clayton: 14 month old and raised eyebrow, watch out for him. >> alisyn: should we have scanned items back on? what else is happening in the news, this day, start with a developing story overnight. north korea once again defying world leaders, and unfailing
3:19 am

>> welcome back. extreme weather to tell you about while were you sleeping. hundreds of tornados battered america's heartland leaving a deadly path of destructive. >> two tornados, two tornados. >> oh, my gosh. >> yes! >> at least five people including two children died in oklahoma, our chief meteorologist rick reichmuth has been following the story all weekend. travelling through the midwest to one of the hardest hit at thurmon, iowa. how is it looking? are you able to see and assess some of the damage? i know it's dark. >> not only dark, but there's no power in the town at this point. can't get a real idea of the flashlight out and with some of the lights we have on the camera here, you can get an idea. this is one of the houses hit. a couple of their cars out here. trees down, siding torn off
3:27 am
and one end of the house here that the roof is gone as part of it. lots of tree dj, and power lines that are down here and there's video that we have from yesterday afternoon in this thurmon, oklahoma area that shows some of the damage that's been done, gives you an idea, certainly, a lot of people's homes experiencing damage. they're saying at this point that 90% of the homes have some sort of damage, 75% of them destroyed. that's a huge percentage for a town, keep in mind it's a small town around 235 people living in town. so it's a small town, but when 75% of your town where you've lived your entire life, it's a big loss for the folks here, big stories across kansas and oklahoma where we have more of those discrete individual monster tornados that we have all of the images and pictures coming from. and dave, last half hour, a very good point the when i was talking a lot of it's
3:28 am
happening overnight. keep in mind, it's 5:25 in the morning here and a lot of the tornados happen the last five to six hours, so, a lot is unknown about damage, about fatalities, and the storm chasers that were out in the storm in full force yesterday really are out for the most part during daylight, once it gets dark, a lot of them leave because it becomes dangerous to do it at that point. so, still will not have a good idea of what's happening until sunrise is here and the worst that we're hearing at this point is woodward, oklahoma where that area, and the fatalities, two others around 50 miles away. so, those are the fatalities, we're hearing at this point. not a lot of population, not any big town where the storms hit yesterday at least for the most part, dodged a lot of it, and that's the good news. but there have been something to hit and more information coming out in the next couple of hours, guys.
3:29 am
>> and said it was children that died in woodward, too, sadly and the footage looks terrifying and thank you for showing us that. >> clayton: it was weird hearing that overnight. more than a hundred twisters hitting, that's got to be wrong, can't be accurate. >> alisyn: sure sounds the warning systems have come a long ways for of couple of years. a scandal in colombia, deepens as we learn more and more about nearly a dozen secret service agents sent there to protect president obama relieved of their duty. and peter doocy, now it involves the military as well. >> reporter: we know it was 11 secret service personal sent packing in cart hana arguing whether or not the agent knew the woman was expected to be paid and the argument in the hallway and hotel workers wanted to know why someone had an
3:30 am
unregistered guest and other agents and supervisors became involved and so did the colombian police, the personal involved were brought to secret service headquarters in washington d.c. for interviews and have been completed. as a result all 11 employees have been placed on administrative leave awn none of the agents involved were on president's details and press secretary jay carney says the president still feels safe. >> the president does have confidence in the secret service and i think that the service has said, and point you to those reports, that this incident had no impact on the president's security. >> the chairman of the house homeland security committee says that these investigations are just getting started. >> and i'll have my staff do a preliminary investigation and i believe probably a hearing and one way or the other we'll find out exactly what happened, why it happened. what action was taken and why, what is going to be done to
3:31 am
ensure that it can't happen again. >> law enforcement officials made clear the details of what happened are still somewhat sketchy, and the secret service says they regret any distraction from the americans, that the situation has caused and here in the state that has certainly been a big one, thanks to you. >> all right, we'll find out more about that, peter, thank you for the update. let's get to some of your other headlines, the tea party alive and well in wisconsin apparently. >> this movement to growing faster. in the end, we you will share a common purpose, fiscal sanity back to washington. >> hundreds of tea partiers turning out for a tax rally. tax day rally outside the capital in madison, yesterday. the is state's lt. governor was also there among other things called for people to

fenway park, and his 100th birthday and he joked around and faking a throw first. and 18 great grandkids and the sox faced off against the tampa bay rays, dave, a proud moment. >> clayton: look at the smile, too. >> dave: the red sox scored 25 runs in the last two days and i think they're getting back in this. should be a special day on friday at fenway park. how about ted williams, one of the best arguably, let's just the best. and serving in world war ii and the korean war. now baseball fans across the country will soon have a chance to claim a piece of this player's iconic memorabilia. joining me now is david hunt, fenway park turning 100 years old on friday and spent a lot of my years at fenway park.
3:34 am
how iconic is dead williams in terms of the relationship with fenway park. does any player represent more than he does. >> no, they're synonymous. you want to talk about the greatest player or players in their history. you have to start with and finish with dead williams and we're honored to be involved with his name. what perfect better time to do this than the 100 anniversary. >> and all of these on display april 28th at fenway park and let's talk about the auction items. the one is from babe ruth. >> yes, an amazing piece. this is a story that dead himself recounts, the only autograph he asked for. a baseball signed to my pal. dead williams and there's nothing i can say that will illustrate better than what it is. beautiful condition, a famous day he met ted almost giddy to meet him, should be about 100 to 200,000. >> 100 to 200,000.
3:35 am
>> yes. >> 1949 most valuable player trophy the year he just missed the triple crown .002 percentage on the average. >> yes. >> and this award symbolizes the epitome of a major league player accomplishment. every major league player aspires to win it, he won it this is 1948-- 49 plaque, story. this should be about 150,000 to a quarter million. >> heavy duty. >> i am a hoping they come down. >> and he won many of the batting titles. 1957. >> yes. >> he did this one at anal 39 and that's what is impressive to me. >> anybody who played baseball watches it 39 years old and he batted .388 the highest since, what he batted before that today. >> and last player to hit-- >> right now 100,000, and it
3:36 am
should be 100 to 200 in the final bidding. >> this is 1999 at, i believe, fenway park when he was at at all-star game and a lot of fans got to say goodbye to ted williams that day and new generation may have been introduced to him. >> and the pinnacle of baseball is coming back and so popular, you know, mcguire and the rest of the players were around him and tony gwinn helped to throw out the actual pitch and you're right, many of them bridged the gap between people that grew up watching him and people that didn't maybe watch him play and learned about who he was later in life and must be the most poignant moment, of the moments that i remember. i've been in fenway for a lot of moments and that may have been the warmest ovation a crowd has given a player. >> one of the underappreciated about ted williams is the service to our country and this is a guy who five years of its career, now, he was the
3:37 am
one who want today serve his country and he was not forced into action and ceremonial posting and wanted to be a naval aviator and talk about what we have here. >> they're my favorite thing in the auction and they are. they're going to bring several thousand at least, not about the dollar value and he started in the korean war, but also in world war ii. two different u.s. could be flikts. in the korean war shot down by enemy fire. he got mad. i'm not letting this plane crash, but had a wingman and flew it back to the base and a massing pair of items. you can imagine ted williams recording these and just an amazing piece. an example of what's in the collection, and really brings his life to the fans-- >> yes, two things you should know, he hit 400 and served his country and he did it bravely, this is one of the most unique items i can

how have things changed and are these the type of conversations that you have? >> oh, yeah, all the time. when i started flying in them. we actually used the less fuel navigation. >> wow, using stars to actually find your way around. >> that's right. >> that was back in the early '80s and prior to that, we used radar navigation, and a concept called dead reckoning. we didn't have the global position systems on air today that allow the very precision strikes. so it's changed quite a bit. >> clayton: now when you talk to your dad about the technology on board. what do you think? you get to play with the newfangled gadgets and don't have to look at the stars anymore to find my way home. >> we've got a lot of new development for sure and talked about earlier, with the precision weapons and a pod that we can use, laser guided weapons for as well as gps as well, too. changed a little bit from the
3:47 am
gravity weapons we used to. >> clayton: you see the newfangled aircraft come out on a regular of the basis and we hear aircraft are being being phased out and those are 60 years, why do you think it has the same now? >> i think it's probably because of the technology that it's been able to incorporate into the airplane. >> so it adapts? >> it adapts. i think the air force has used it, you know, to keep adapting, putting on the new technology. it's a great platform for delivering a lot of capability, plus it can go a long way. >> how important is it to the history of this country to be able to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the aircraft. people maybe aren't aware of how important the aircraft is. what would you say to them this morning be. >> i would say it's pretty cool. my grandfather played the a to h model and we fly the h model still. so it may only be a
3:48 am
50-year-old aircraft now, but a-model to the 60-year-old one, but it's cool and awesome thing to be a part of. >> clayton: is especially when the kids can go the air show and touch them and see them. and congratulations, it's a great story, celebrating the 60th anniversary. grandpa hope you're watching at home in california. thanks, guys. >> thanks. >> clayton: your service to our country is appreciated. coming up on the show, more than 100 tornados ripping through the midwest overnight. turning deadly in some states. a live report from iowa where one town is nearly entirely destroyed. attack ads can get nasty and one court ruling they're now educational and can run during shows like sesame street. ♪ i stepped on the machine, and it showed me the pressure points on

3:53 am
are watching? >> not the at all. as a parent, i'm concerned about this. put my kid in front of sesame street instead of coming back at bc's rant background senator so-and-so's record on health care reform? i don't like it. >> alisyn: that's funny. neil, what do you think about that possibility? >> well, our kids are getting bombarded by sex and drugs and prosecutor miscu prom skew-- promiscuity. they went back to their parents and started asking questions. they're going to inherit the democracy of oust and much smarter. i think they can make it a much better place earlier than we give them credit for. >> alisyn: obviously, when we were young, schoolhouse rock did a great job of showing how a bill you know travels through congress and becomes a law, but, do your kids really
3:54 am
need to see granny pushed off the cliff like one of those attack ads, jennifer? >> no, absolutely not. and i think the key thing is that, you know, there's great schoolhouse rock shows made an effort to be unbiased. these are very biased messages and as parents, that's our job to educate our children about the political arena, not some political attack ads. >> yeah, so, neil, is there too much of an agenda in these attack ads for kids to just really be learning about the pure political process? >> let's remember that there are not the contents, their ads, right? and what our kids need to be exposed to the political process, the good, the bad. and the ugly, and go back to the parents and start asking questions. and you know, i think it's a very positive thing to bring kids into the political process as early as we can, you know, having an educated is essential to a functioning democracy and i think it's wonderful that we would bring
3:55 am
kids into the process sooner rather than later and go back to the parents and look, let them ask the question and yes, they are going to see pretty nasty thing, but i don't think it's worse than the other stuff they see in our media and there's a lot more things hurting our kids that we need to clean up before we get to political ads. >> let me read to you what the judge on the 9th circuit, how he justified the issue. the issue and the political advertisements, no threat of commercialization and the ban of such advertising cannot be narrowly tailored in preventing these. and it sounds like pbs and others are trying to protect against kids seeing commercials, but not political attack ads. is that a good justification? >> i don't think so at all. i mean, the whole idea behind public television was supposed to be immune to the market forces, it's immune for the

4:01 am
everybody, we start with a fox news alert. the images are horrifying and certainly a tad eerie, look at that. hundreds of violent tornados swept across the midwest in the middle of the night. we now know at least five people, including two small children lost their lives in oklahoma and that number could rise as the sun comes up. >> alisyn: joining us live is our chief meteorologist rick reichmuth. he's on the ground in one of the hardest hit grounds, in thurmon, iowa and you said that 75% looks leveled. >> 75% and 90% experiencing damage. i want to quickly talk about the weather going on right now. there's still tornadic activity going on and if you'll throw up the weather maps you can get a look at what's going on. there's still this storm cutting across the central
4:02 am
part of the country and a tornado warning right now just to the north of sul at that, oklahoma and a tornado warning includes osage, washington, tulsa, until 6:50 in the morning, there's still activity going on and as the day heats up again and sunlight comes out. you might see more. as you advance that map, we'll see where the severe threat is today. a slight threat across much of the south and stretching across areas of missouri and texas and hit that advance bar one, and a moderate risk of for severe weather in areas of wisconsin, we have some severe weather threat today, but not as significant as yesterday. yesterday, really, the main event for this. you were talking earlier in the show, alisyn about snow in arizona and that's part of the same system. here we go. the picture is up here, see that red bulls eye to the the
4:03 am
north, that's where the the moderate risk for severe weather it. you still need to be watching this. let's go back to the pictures for the storm yesterday and kansas and oklahoma, seeing, i think, the worst of it, the pictures of tornado amazing. we knew this was going to be a big event and the storm chasers went out in full force yesterday and got amazing pictures and everybody thinks the storm chasers are doing this for fun and a lot of them are. but, especially, now days with social media, great things come out of this because they're able to get warnings out and so quickly to people and i believe that that saves lives. especially when you see tornados like that that you're seeing right there. and this is some of the damage, i'm not sure where the pictures are coming from, and all right. this is, this is from oklahoma, that we're seek this damage, these pictures coming out. so, kind of a widespread event here in thurmon, iowa, they're at school that the roof was blown off and now, kind of scattered all over the place,
4:04 am
and just wood and debris, nails that we see, one of the reasons it's so difficult. in fact, you come over here and take a look right here, one of the boards that flew up. and any piece of woodward that's on any roof, any building, attached by nails and people get out here, trying to look for the keepsakes and their memories and their pictures and their fami family heirlooms and that's what they face. a little bit of sunlight is beginning to come through or light into the horizon, that's a good thing, we'll be able to get some better pictures and people will be able to get back out here and start the things they have to do today, guys. >> alisyn: thank you for walking through it. the rest of the headlines, another fox news alert. and the u.s. and other international allies are now under attack by taliban and other militant forces, fox news confirming that explosions and gunfire here in the u.s., british and german
4:05 am
embassies in kabul and attacks at the u.s. base outside of kabul, inside n.a.t.o. and afghan police headquarters and witnesses say the militants are launching grenades grenades in hotels and foreign neighborhoods where diplomates are known to live. we'll check with geraldo. and search efforts continue for missing boaters off the northern california coast after a deadly crash. this is a video of three crew members being rescued and three were missing. the and when the boat turned around to find them and another wave, conditions of the survivors are not yet known. could this man be the next vice-president of the united states? well, several g.o.p. strategists sure think so. luis fortuno governor of puerto rico called a possible

sleeper pick to run with mitt romney for the white house. and in a recent interview he described fortuno as one of the great leaders of the republican parties and they say it would be a huge draw for the hispanic vote and he said he would do anything to help him win the election. >> that'd shake it up pt. >> would you spend 100,000 to spend the day with tim tebow. >> dave: i love you tebow, but no way. >> alisyn: the answer yes for one married florida couple, the pair won a bid at a live auction during the tim tebow golf classic, and they have big plans for the jets quarterback, they're taking him home with them. hmmm. the couple who have not been identified said they're going to take him to meet underprivileged children near their florida neighborhood and it goes to the tim tebow foundation and he's always meeting kids with special needs and-- >> i'd pay a lot of money to hang out with tim tebow and
4:07 am
don't have that cash. >> and the the kids. >> alisyn: household chores. >> clayton: we have gardening that we need. >> dave: tim would probably need it. that humble. >> clayton: my wife likes pasta and cream sauce, can you whip that up for her tonight. >> dave: i have a question for the viewers and it's, we don't have $100,000 burning a hole in your pocket. if you had a lot of money, who would you pay money to hang out with, a large portion of money to spend a day with? let us know and we'll discuss that at ff weekend on twitter. >> clayton: meanwhile, let's talk to politics this morning, because the president doing an interview and talking about immigration reform, and the president saying something interesting about how long he needs to get this done. and see what you think about it, take a listen. >> i can promise i will try to do it in the first year of my second term and i want to try this year. the challenge we've got on immigration reform is very simple. i've got a majority of democrats and i've got no
4:08 am
republicans prepared to vote for it. >> and that's an interesting turn from where the president was, then candidate obama was just a few years ago. >> right, an interesting turn of a phrase, also. and he emphasized, i promise i can try to do it. now, back in 2008, candidate obama made a much more grandiose promise when he sat down with univision. he said, i will promise, i will push for immigration reform in my very first year of presidency. and he also used the word guarantee, i can guarantee, top priority, i will guarantee to pursue immigration reform and it's obviously the burden of the office, and to be much more circumspect. and let's listen to him in 2008. >> the american people need us to put him in. so the petty partisanship that passes for politics in washington and they need us to enact comprehensive immigration reform, once and
4:09 am
for all. they need not -- we can't wait 20 years from now to do it. we can't wait for ten years from now to do it. we need to do it by the end of my first term as president of the united states of america. i stood in debates during the democratic primary when it wasn't comfortable and spoke out fiercely on behalf of this issue and i will make it a top priority in my first year as president. >> dave: so this is clearly about one issue, immigration. but it's about a broader problem of promising things that obviously you can't keep and about saying, hey, give me more time, give me more time. how long can the american people hang on? and that is something the president addressed three years ago. i think. >> i will be held accountable, you know, i've got four years. >> how quickly that-- >> exactly, a year from now, i think that people are going to see that we're starting to
4:10 am
make some progress, but there's still going to be some pain out there. if i don't have this done in three years there's going to be a one term proposition. >> clayton: talking about the economy and turning over the economy. sure, by all accounts, the story says unemployment not dropping below 8%, no president since fdr elected with those numbers. if you look at approval rating from latinos for president obama, it's a ridiculous number, guys, 49% of average americans, just the national poll, give president obama 49% approval rating for the be job he's doing, but among latinos, that approval rating is 73%. so, there's a lot of ground to be made up from the other candidates. is he able to accomplish comprehensive immigration reform? no president has been able to do it when nixon floated the idea. >> that number suggests that they are giving him a pass, the hispanic community giving a pass on not making the priority. although he says, he tried to
4:11 am
do it. he never crafted the overall immigration. and said let's put it out there and vote for or answers it. >> and we'll see, come election time. and let's talk about something that affects most people in the united states. and that of course is airline travel and airport security. well, the former head of the tsa, from 2005 to 2009 basically says, hey, it is a mess. the disaster, and his name is tim halle. here he is criticizing the security. says more than a decade after 9/11 it's a national embarrassment that our airport security system remains so hopelessly bureaucratic and disconnected from the people whom it's meant to affect. and made air travel an unending nightmare for u.s. passengers. >> if the suggestions how to actually reform the tsa and some of these may surprise you because he says no more banned items. you know, the three, three ounces of liquid, you can't bring on the flight, which is
4:12 am
absurd. and nail files, whatever-- >> dangerous. >> and lighters, even knives could be allowed on planes. >> clayton: the near i behind that the cockpit is so secure and bullet-proof don't have to worry with someone going through a lighter or a knife and go through a bullet protected law. and rewards for initiatives and hold them accountable when they make mistakes. >> can you imagine, hold them accountable? that sounds incredible. eliminate baggage fees, randomize security. that's interesting, one out of every four, whatever, choose randomly, pulled pulled over and the more thorough frisking or more thorough going over. >> but to dave's point earlier. el al airlines, they don't have a random. one out of every four, it's the profiling of the line and looking at individuals who see, not a race, just who looks shifty. >> the problem with that is
4:13 am
israel is the size of new jersey. we have a bigger country. so, you can't could that on the level that el al can. >> who is against arguing that you can. >> alisyn: i love our el al security. yes, but, it's so big. the argument on the other side the united states is so big so many more airports, randomizing it would be a way cut into it. you never know if you're the one pulled over every five or whatever passengers skroo what would you like to see changed about the tsa? i imagine you have thoughts on that. and ff weekend on twitter. >> clayton: the man behind the bombing of the u.s.s. cole gets his day in court. a look back, the commander of the ship tells us what we can learn from it. >> alisyn: plus, a man and his motorcycle, we'll meet the guy who is riding through 250 years of history across america. he'll be here. ♪ wake up!

>> on october 12th, 2000. 11 months before the september 11th terrorist attacks, the u.s.s. cole was refueling in yemen when two al-qaeda suicide bombers sent by osama bin laden drive up alongside the ship in a boat feel of explosives, that day 17 united states sailors were killed and 39 wounded. so what did we learn from that fateful day and what do we still need to learn? joining me now is the man who was the commander of the u.s.s. cole that day in october. and the author of the new book "front burner, al-qaeda's
4:18 am
attack on the u.s.s. cole" thanks for being here. >> good morning, dave, thanks for having me on the show. >> dave: how might history have been different had we learned from the attack on the uss cole, your ship? >> i think it'd been different if we'd had an intelligence community and a military andl s taken a more aggressive approach. we had been living with terrorist attacks overseas for literally decades and yet, we did nothing. when you look back and especially during the clinton administration, when you attacked buildings and embassies, those are things that house and represent u.s. interests. when you attack a war ship it that is something that defends citizens and our economic interests around the globe and when we attacked, it was an act of war and yet, we did nothing and when the bush administration came in, we also just waited and didn't do anything again and i think that that doctrine of waiting until we take the first hit instead of being preempted, is
4:19 am
fundamental how we should fight the war. >> why did we not take it as seriously. >> you yourself. evening the morning of september 11th, you were in the headquarters, in langley, warning people about what this could mean, about osama bin laden and al-qaeda. why weren't these warnings listened to? >> i think we as a nation kind of developed an attitude where we said, hey, it's american overseas at the hands of terrorists, a small price at that we pay for being on the international stage, and i just think that we built up this insulation against those attacks, because it really wasn't affect being people here at home. and unfortunately, it took september 11th to really wake up the american people and the attack on the u.s.s. can cole has been somewhat in the shadow of that attack and my opportunity to get the front runner out there, after ten, 11 years after sitting down at the keyboard and putting it out there. educate the american people and what heroes they are 11 months before 9/11.
4:20 am
>> absolutely, but most of us, sir, take comfort in knowing or at least believing that the united states has learned from that attack at 9/11. and what the one lesson we still have yet to learn? >> i think that the familiarity is breeding contempt. we're ten years, 11 years on now from the 9/11 attacks and we're getting comfortable, we want to again, as you see, lower our guard with tsa has the previous report had, plus, we're looking at lower other things, not as engaged around the world as we need to be. we want to withdraw from afghanistan unilaterally and withdrew from iraq, and that may find good and satisfy a political base and may not be enough national security interest, and incumbent upon husband, since world war ii, we've had an important role on the international stage. and first and foremost we look out for our national interest. >> dave: check out the book, and thanks for your service and thanks for being here.

4:33 am
>> showing incredible video all morning long. check out the twister through kansas. the at least five people killed by powerful storms in oklahoma and the damage might be be done there, but for now, they're left with the painful process of picking up the pieces. and our chief meteorologist rick reichmuth has been following the story all weekend, and he joins us live from one of the hardest hit towns, that's thurmon, iowa, and rick, now the sun is coming up and we are a getting a better sense of the damage, right? >> yeah, i walked around the town with a little bit of light that we're starting to see. you get a better shot of what he is going on. a lot of damage, you know, there's about 90 buildings in this town and the town is 235 people. and about 90% of the buildings have damage and about 75% destroyed. so, you can see, a the lot of structures, they're not-- it's not the thing that the
4:34 am
place is wiped off the map, but so much damage to a lot of the buildings that they'll have to be taken down before, versus being able to rebuild that. so, i think that's what we'll be talking about here. i tell you what, a very widespread storm, 120 reports of tornados yesterday, and that's from oklahoma, and into kansas and nebraska and iowa, at this point, and so, a lot of areas sustaining damage and what we saw up here across iowa and nebraska we thought would be the bulls eye and the rain cooled the lower level of the atmosphere, that means it didn't heat up to cause the big tornados like the images we saw elsewhere in kansas. take a look at some of the pictures out of kansas, the still pictures sent to me by a storm chaser friend of mine out of kansas, out on tomorrow of the storms and he got the pictures that are phenomenal. this is not one of those, this is a still picture from a trailer park just outside the
4:35 am
wichita area, and that fire started as the tornado went through there. and these are the pictures from jeremy, the storm chaser and take a look how large that tornado is, and these are the kind of ef 3, ef 4, and ef 5 tornados, if there's any good news, there's not a lot of big populated areas across western kansas where the storm started firing so the tornados kind of dodged the towns that were there. now, one of the tornados hit the town like greensburg, kansas, five years ago, wiped off the map and this is the scenario that we saw yesterday and why the warnings were no high. fortunately, it appears that the towns were not hit in that direct fashion. the only caveat i would say to that, guys, a lot of the storms happened after sunset last night and so, the sun is just beginning to rise here, across the eastern side of iowa and not across parts of kansas and such, so we're going to get more information coming. the one town in oklahoma, appears to have sustained the
4:36 am
most damage, woodward, oklahoma and there's five fatalities in that area, including two children, three people killed in the trailer park there. that's why they always say you cannot be in a mobile home with the tornado. unfortunately, the warning system in that town was taken out by lightning before the tornado got there. the warnings did not go off in the town and therefore, people didn't likely have the anticipation that they needed to get out of harm's way. guys. >> so sad. rick, thanks for telling us about it. and the pictures from the storm chaser and i don't remember seeing as big a tornado as seeing the pictures as why, covered much of a swath. so we'll check back with rick throughout the morning. >> now to a developing story overnight. north korea unveiling what appears to be another missile of course, and the nation is facing international backlash from the first launch attempt just a few days ago. >> greg palkot live in pyongyang, north korea and the first time hearing words out of the new leader's mouth,

4:39 am
public blix store in florida, hurting ten people and people say it sounded like an explosion. horrifying scene as shoppers were thrown from the impact and run over. that's when other shoppers and employees jumped into action. >> i attended to an older woman who's husband was under the car and the car went through and took an 80-year-old man, he was under the car. >> they had the managers from every department pick up the car, literally pick up the car and pull it out. >> alisyn: a number of people were seriously injured. a baby thrown into another aisle luckily expected to be okay. the elderly woman driving the car is expect today face charges. so, here is the lowest of the low, you're looking at a man stealing auction items that were supposed to benefit the families of two fallen fives. the coldhearted crime in the basement of a philadelphia bar, while the charity event was going on upstairs.

4:48 am
being hypocritical saying at one point that mitt romney was part after cult and christians shouldn't vote for him and now you're changing your tune. >> and i'm not changing my tune and never said that christians should not vote for mitt romney. when i was answering a question of theology, there are vast differences between mormons and christians, but we do share many of the same values, like the sanctity of life and religious freedom. i was on your show in january at the day of the iowa caucus and i said at that point, if mitt romney became the nominee, i would support him. so, there's no inconsistency here at all. >> dave: so you do feel he's not a christian? >> well, i'm saying the same thing that rick warren said last sunday on another network, 75% of usa today cited a poll saying don't believe that mormonism is the same as christianity, but we share many of the same values, i think that christian are

4:50 am
principles, and mitt romney, who supports biblical principles. >> do you feel that other evangelicals will come out. the question is enthusiasm. will they get out and vote for him come the fall? >> i believe they will. you know, in 200830 million evangel ales, sat at home and dependent vote. and president obama won by 10 million votes. i think in the last four years, what we've seen, especially what the president has done the last six months, in watching the war against religious celebrity not just talking about the hhs mandate, but talking about last october when he tried to rescind the church exemption and hiring practices, i think it's more evangelical to what the president is doing and i think they will turn out and vote not for partisan reasons, but because he opposes biblical principles. >> we'll see on the fascinating election, always great to see you here on the show and thanks for waking up

5:02 am
joined by two that were inside when the tornado touched down. >> rick: good morning, 120 reports of tornados across the central plains yesterday. one of those likely not confirmed yet that it was a tornado, but certainly looks like way. and a broad area in iowa. now that the the sun is coming up and see the damage and the trip tops for 150 yards away i would say. i'm joined by dead and karen stafford and we woke you up with our satellite truck outside your house. were you able to spend the night in the house though, so that's a good start. >> yes, we were, yes. >> rick: tell me what was going on yesterday. you knew there was a storm coming, but dead, the at what point did you think this is actually coming right here. >> when i saw the trees blowing down the road. and we went to the bathroom and the only place to take shelter in. >> rick: do you feel you had sufficient warning, you knew
5:03 am
this was coming. >> yes, this were sirens and we knew we were watching the weather. >> rick: and you went into the bathroom, and what were you thinking at that time? >> we're going to get blown away (laughter) >> did you think this might be it, it might be one that's going to destroy everything and could be life threatening. >> well, we've never been in anything like this before. we knew it was bad. we were scared, everybody was scared. >> rick: you said you've lived in this town your whole life and were you born here. and when you then come out of your house before this, and you see it looking like this, what do you think? >> well, i news it was worst storm we've had. i've never seen building damage like this before. we're lucky and i think it could have been a lot worse. >> tell me about your neighbors and such that you know around here? >> well, we have a neighbor that livers down the street and her roof caved in and got her warm. she's okay as far as i know, everyone's fine, but we've had a lot of support from out of town and a lot of people to help us and we appreciate

that. >> it's always amazing how quickly there are crews who get out to the places and do you feel that you've got the support and the crews are doing everything they need today take care of you right away. >> oh, yes, yes, they were here right away and even the national guard is out here. >> now, what do you do this morning? don't have tv and electricity. when you look at this, do you have a place to start? >> yeah, get the chain saws out and get after it. all we can do. >> you guys have been laughing and i think when you go out and nobody died in the town, you can certainly feel good about it. >> yes, everybody's safe. >> rick: that's the case here, not the case in oklahoma where there was five fatalities, but i tell you guys, overall for having 120 tornados and the pictures the size of these tornados across kansas and oklahoma and especially, it's a wonder there weren't more fatalities and certainly, all of the effort and the warnings that have come out, the storm chasers tweeting out that
5:05 am
information, certainly things could have been a lot worse from this outbreak, guys. >> dave: any sense of speed, ef-3, 4, or is that too early? >> it is too early, but this one talking maybe an ef-1, an ef-2, it's a pretty wide area, but i haven't seen any homes leveled or any of that kind of damage. >> alisyn: thanks so much. >> clayton: we'll get back with rick in a little while. some the news we were reporting, former vice-president dick cheney underwent a heart transplant after for a number of years being on the waiting list, up to 18 months with the battery pack whens carrying. now, the first time he's been out on the public stage and doing a speech, not like a small speech, a 20 minute deal. an hour and 15 minutes he was out there in cheyenne, west nile wooim speaking in front of a large audience. take a listen to what the vice-president had to say. >> i can't think of a time
5:06 am
where it's more important becoming president than today with respect to barack obama. i think he mass been an unmitigated disaster to the country. in a position where he gets four more years in the white house, to continue the policies he has, both with respect to the economy and tax policies and defense, and so many other areas would be huge, huge disappointment. >> clayton: the heart is working. >> alisyn: back with a vengeance. and he also talked about mitt romney and he says he believes that mitt romney would do a whale of a job and that the g.o.p. should support him. >> i think it's very important that we get together and gather together and get behind our likely nominee, it's mitt romney. i've known him for long time. i've got a lot of confidence
5:07 am
in him. >> alisyn:. >> dave: and clearly the heart looks and good, better than in recent months and defended enhanced interrogation, the largest applause by far when he said enhanced interrogation, produces a wealth of america and don't let anybody tell you the program didn't work. and that got the cloud created. >> alisyn: i know this is a political story we're talking about, but also a medical miracle story. three weeks ago, a heart transplant and then, a heart transplant. and for a minute, an hour and 15 minutes as you said and walked unassisted, just incredible. >> clayton: he was as we pointed out, critical of president obama and you heard the comment there with he's an unmitigated disaster. there's been criticism over the president's stimulus and whether or not it created jobs or not. and we're getting insight this morning, into two manufacturing plants, where the president and the vice-president, joe biden, showed up and counted these
5:08 am
electrical batteries that the plants were to build and they got 300 million to bring the jobs there and create the batteries. when you pull the curtain back. >> alisyn: in mir, what happened the battery companies, that they hired korean workers. and so, though these were shovel ready jobs with 300 million dollars in stimulus, the money did not all go to american workers. >> dave: right. the battery factories are in large part korean owned and not making the labor bosses happy. one in michigan says, about the hiring of korean workers, i think there's a lot of anger out there, not to be confused with prejudice against anyone from another country, this is american taxpayer dollars and there should be american jobs created with those american taxpayer jobs. now, the korean companies defend that by saying that those workers have unique experience with sophisticated
5:09 am
equipment. look. stimulus dollars, fine, they need to create jobs, but they cannot create jobs for people that don't-- you know, from other countries. that's just pretty simple, we didn't do our homework before dollaring out millions of dollars. >> alisyn: that should be a stipulation. >> dave: there weren't a lot of strings attached. >> alisyn: anyway we'll get to the news and think about the stories. meanwhile, a fox news alert right now. the taliban in washington an assault on u.s. and other international allies in afghanistan at this hour. and fox news is confirming explosions and gunfire still taking place, near the u.s., british and german entities. new video you're seeing. and at an afghan parliament building and n.a.t.o. headquarters and at least one u.s. base. in kabul and three other afghan cities, taliban says they've been planning assault as the spring offensive.

embassy and it started in earnest and they locked the whole place down and it was frustrating for me, i was inside the embassy, waiting to interview ryan crocker as the attack was happening, my brother and the cameraman were outside, and craig got to the scene where the attacks were taking place and here is some of craig's video. >> heard a sharp crack of machine gunfire. another explosion, just occurred. a number of afghan soldiers and police have moved into the area. it is not in one area. it is actually, surrounding this area, we're by the british embassy now. the... >> reporter: and am badge crocker then -- ambassador crocker then called us aside and
6:08 am
gave me this world exclusive interview about the attack, here is the u.s. ambassador, to afghanistan, ryan crocker. >> more excitement than we all bargained for when we scheduled this interview, ambassador. >> we wouldn't want... yes. >> what do we have. >> a confused situation, these things are, but there appear to be multiple sources of attack, one southeast of here, we know of, newe have seen fire and several attacks in several of the provinces. again, in the smoke, dust, fog and confusion of this kind of war, it will take a while to sort all of this out. i'm in touch with my friend and battle buddy, general allen and all of our folks are accounted
6:09 am
for and safe. really don't know what is going on around town but, we have seen the afghan security forces are responding to this, as they did in other attacks and seem to have it under control. >> reporter: i'm here with our bureau chief, right now, he's holding down the fort here, and craig, what did you hear, down there? >> gunfire. our neighborhood is a short distance from the u.s. embassy and talking about a thousand feet or so and the moment the sound of gunfire broke out it brought my memory to september when the u.s. embassy was attacked. >> reporter: the last significant attack in kabul. >> and the explosion started and i thought it was rpgs to begin with and, suicide bombs and car bo bombs. >> reporter: and you metro detroit multiple explosions and
6:10 am
it seems to me the explosions were all around you. >> they were and i heard them and saw them. we can see the reports, we saw the smoke coming up. the -- it looked like it was -- that the attackers had taken position in some buildings, unoccupied buildings and, also a hotel in the downtown area, firing, looked like, rpgs almost, you heard two retorts, a bomb and another bomb and you saw the smoke rising and they were targeting the embassy area. the british embassy is there, the german embassy, the american embassy and we see the plumes of smoke coming up from there. and, it was quite a sight. >> reporter: now, follow me, if you go, right past that flag, go to that radio tower, that was the scene of the attack. that is where the attack was centered, it seems to me, at least the attack here in kabul. bear in mind, dave, clayton and alisyn, there are reports of attacks in jalalabad, a city to the east of here and other places around the country.
6:11 am
clearly, this was a multiple attack by the taliban, perhaps, but i must tell you that despite a claim of responsibility by the taliban, the ambassador, ryan crocker, said this has all the hallmarks of the hawwani criminal network based on the other side of the border in pakistan, they are trying to disrupt the handover of power from the united states, and, nato forces, to the afghans. now, it is the afghans who control security here in kabul and the taliban or the hawwani network are enemies trying to disrupt the ps proce-- peace pr and we have heard sporadic fire as soon as five minutes ago and we'll update you with any more information and no american or western casualties as far as we can tell. >> clayton: a coordinated attack by whomever is behind this, geraldo rivera live for us in

>> alisyn: the so-called war on women hit a fever pitch last week when democratic strategist hillary rosen said ann romney never worked a day in her life, though rosen has since apologized will the comments be a liability for the president? ann coulter joins us now. good morning, ann. >> good morning. >> alisyn: president obama seemed to suggest this is a distraction and they are ready to move on and the country is more interested in the economy and jobs and, the country is more interested in the economy and jobs, to be fair, but it's an issue and if you based it upon the reaction it had on cable news, on network news, on social media, around dining rooms, you know, in people's homes, this is a big, hot issue. >> yes. and it should be. it feeds into the feminist base of the democratic party looking down their noses at women who stay home and raise their children and also i think it is
6:17 am
directly from the white house and hillary rosen bumbled it, and, attacking mitt romney and his family for being wealthy. based on an insanely false premise you must be poor yourself to understand -- at that point, running for president, apparently. when conservatives criticized obama, and his team as being elitist in 2008, liberals went around saying i think we should have an elite president and shouldn't our president be more elite and we meant it not as good, but air begrrogant and th you know better than we do and now we have a man, who -- this idea he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, a standard attack from left on republicans and hillary rosen blew it.
6:18 am
>> clayton: at issue is the gender gap, certainly why the mitt romney campaign does not want it to go away and certainly why the obama administration wants to go away, the -- barack obama has a big advantage when it comes to women voters now and among independents has a higher advantage than mitt romney. at issue is the disconnect. inability for the g.o.p. to woo women voters and governor mike huckabee talked about how republicans had a difficult time connecting with women. does it help and what does the g.o.p. need to do to connect with women going into the fall? >> i loved how the obama administration, after lovingly -- the entire media, going through the whole rush limbaugh, calling the woman a slut for three weeks, covered like this moon landing and now, five minutes after their -- more of a spokesman for obama than rush limbaugh is for mitt romney, says this about women who stay home and raise their own children, five seconds into that, yes, let's move on now,
6:19 am
let's move on. no, this is how the democratic party thinks of women, unless they are career women and have foreign nan is, often illegal foreign nannies raising their children and remember the trouble bill clinton had with his attorney generals, one after another, kept being withdrawn because they hired illegal aliens to raise their kids and joe biden -- i love him, we loved him in the clinton white house and goes to the clinton white house and has to explain to all the feminists in the democratic party, no, in many parts of the country, women raise their own children. they aren't hiring help, to do that for them. so, there really -- this does describe a cultural difference between the parties, and, it was a wedge that the obama campaign was planning on using against the romneys and romney, gave away the money he inherited from
6:20 am
his father. >> dave: and you mentioned joe biden. give me one name you'd like to see as mitt romney's vice president. >> chris christie. >> dave: you think he'll accept? >> sure. yeah. it will be a winning ticket. i'm looking very optimistic about our ticket this fall. >> alisyn: thanks so much. great to see you. >> dave: good to see you, ann. >> clayton: coming up, catholics are releasing a video urging all catholics to cast their vote this november in order to help shape our future. will the powerful imagery work to get them to the polls? we'll explore it next with father john. >> alisyn: how much would you shell out for a day with tim tebow. the price one couple says he's worth.

motivating people to vote. >> it is well done and just to give a summary of what it says, it talks about, you picked it up a little from the clip, there are some elements of the debate that we are having about what is important for our country, that are negotiable. in other words, there can be prudential decisions, what is the best way to run the economy, to get jobs, et cetera, et cetera, right? and then they say, it came up clearly, other issues are nonnegotiable. not negotiable, those are life, marriage and religious liberty and there is a quote from cardinal timothy dolan that, very clearly states, the situation we're in right now. now, to be clear, cardinal dolan was not involved in the video but they quoted him and, what we are going to be seeing i think in these coming months, are lay people responding to the bishop's cry to get involved. and to fight back where religious liberty, in particular, is under attack, and they just put out a document on thursday, that shows not only
6:27 am
the hhs mandate, situation, but, 7 different areas in which religious liberty is under attack in our country and they are saying, leading up to july 4th, there will be a fortnight for freedom, two weeks in preparation for july 4th, in which lay people are called to fight back and protect not only religious liberty but, to protect our constitution. this is unprecedented. >> clayton: the video is not done by bishops, and more powerful because it's not done by the bishops. >> and i don't think lay people should ask permission from the bishops or priests to do these things, take the principle and do what you are supposed to do as laity to influence kol picks and the workforce. >> alisyn: what are they calling them to do. >> in two weeks, they are calling for prayer for our country and two weeks of prayer that is also, obviously, protest

6:46 am
room in the white house, only four men are allowed to check into. an unmarked townhouse they use, when they are visiting, it has rich choose and, something their conscious of, once you have been the president of the united states you are bound to the other presidents by an experience no one else can understand. >> clayton: remarkable, you talk about a senior advisor to three presidents, recalling watching the faces of the presidents as they learn, my god, what have they gotten myself into and they realize on the campaign trail, these guys know -- have no idea, when they get the first briefing, everything changes. >> president bush, the first president bush told us that you think you now. you are campaigning and think you know what it means to be president and the day you get your first intelligence briefing, everything changes. now you realize not just the weight of the responsibility you carry but the fact that until you are in that position you can never judge a president without knowing what crosses his desk and what he knows that he bases
6:47 am
his decisions on. >> clayton: fascinating relationships emerged. reagan and clinton. fascinating. who among us knew it was a unique club, they'd have phone calls an conversations. >> this is a transition between one of the oldest, reagan was one of the oldest presidents, and clinton one of the youngest and after the election clinton went to visit reagan in his office in los angeles to get advice, which is something new presidents typically do, and, reagan, had two pieces of advice, first, use camp david. very important that you rest, the job is a killer and, second, you need to learn how to salute. and, reagan, the former actor, understood about percentage the job of president and saw through the clinton he didn't perform a military salute and, they practiced it. >> clayton: and he was mocked for not doing a proper salute and, truman and hoover. this is where the club started, correct? >> and the most unlikely pair, couldn't be more different politically and personally and
6:48 am
truman finds himself in office and he's facing a disaster in europe, a humanitarian disaster, and herbert hoover, an engineer before he was president was very good at solving complex puzzles and, truman called him in, he had not set foot in the white house since he left office, 13 years before and truman said, i need your help and hoover as we saw again and again and again, did not care the current president is a democrat, republican, it is about serving the country and hoover knew there were things he could do to help... >> clayton: and one of the stories, he cried being thankful he was being brought back into the fold, because of the humanitarian and food crisis following world war ii. >> it was frustrating for him, not to be able to help when he had the relationships overseas that could make a difference. >> clayton: and, we have the first president bush and a relationship that he had. tell us about this. >> the extraordinary one is to have a father and son in the
6:49 am
white house, so close together and what struck -- a lot of people wrote, doctoral dissertations were written, how it affected the presidency and we were interested in how bush 43's presidency affected the father-son relationship and he understood, a president has many, many, many advisors and you only have one father and what was important and they both talk about, how it was the unconditional love of a father no one else could provide, it wasn't a matter of the senior president bush giving advice to the younger. >> clayton: one thing i liked, you mentioned thomas jefferson calling the presidency a splendid misery and president eisenhower was mocked for playing a lot of golf and president truman said, you know what? misery follows you around on the golf course, all the presidents' problems followed them around and anyone who has not been in office, don't mock it because you have no idea what you are talk you about. >> there are many ways they defend one another and one of
6:50 am
them, don't criticize a president for taking vacations, don't criticize him for playing a round of golf. you have no idea what that job does to you and we want our president to rest, to get to replenish themselves, it is really important. >> clayton: as reagan said, go to camp david, nancy gibbs, the book is fascinating, out on tuesday and pre-order it now on amazon, a fascinating walk through american history. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> clayton: coming up, vegetables, never looked so good. showing you incredible veggie creations the whole family will want to eat. i hope my wife is watching, my son will eat more vegetables.
